Last summer during our Food & Garden Summer Camp, a lot of recipes making and cooking went on. In the creation process, we learned about smelling and tasting our ingredients, so that we would know how they would influence the dish at hand. We are currently planning our 2012 summer camp season, and as we go back, are inspired by the memory of the flavors combined. This Salad Walad salad (original name of course) was pretty simple. The magic – in the vinaigrette. Pull out all these ingredients, and make some magic of your own!

  • your favorite chopped lettuce
  • grated carrots
  • olive oil
  • apple cider vinegar
